I'm a big fan of Dagger boats and I've had a few. The Juice took over from 2002s id. Similar in shape but a little wider. It's much more comfy than previous incarnations by Dagger.

I've had mine on the river few times. First few trips it had me over more than I would have expected but a quick mess about with the seat position has sorted this.

Great boat! This boat rolls like a dream. Goes straight or not at (your) will. If you're anywhere near 180 lbs., though, go for the 6.9. I'm 5-6 and 178, but the 7.1 rides too high for me. The boat ferries in a few strokes, handles any water you throw at it.
